Special Issue "Molecular Diagnosis, Genetics and Evolution of Human Pathogenic Fungi"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 May 2023) | Viewed by 3129
Interests: pathogenic fungi; speciation; genetic variability; virulence; autocatalitic genetic elements
Over the past few years, accumulated knowlegde about fungal genomics and genetics faciliated the enhanced understanding of many pertinent aspects for medical mycology, such as (i) fungal taxonomy, as more and more phylogenetic molecular markers become available; (ii) fungal cryptic speciation; and (iii) the impact of fungal genetic variability in virulence, parasite–host interactions, fungal eco-epidemiology, clinical aspects of mycoses, and antifungal susceptibility. An understanding of certain fungal species as a variable population has improved the tools for molecular diagnostic and genotyping of many important fungal pathogens. Therefore, this Special Issue of JoF welcomes research and review papers about fungal genetics and evolution and their impact on the pathogenesis and diagnostic of fungal diseases.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Fungi is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
